Eventing legend retires Olympic horse to be ‘pampered’ at home

A horse who won an Olympic medal in one of his first international seasons is to spend a happy retirement “generally being pampered” at home.

Mark Todd has paid tribute to NZB Campino, who is stepping out of the limelight aged 17, but will stay at the Todds’ Wiltshire yard.

“Kinky” has been with Mark since 2009, and his stable name came about almost by mistake.

“He arrived when I wasn’t there,” Mark told H&H. “He’d been ridden by the Japanese rider Kenki Sato, so the girls at the yard thought the tag on his collar said Kinky, called him that, and it stuck – but it did kind of suit him.”
